She habitually closes all her apps. This being after owning a Nokia N97, which required the exercise to even run.
I also had this in business ethics class. Apparently this particular case was singled out in analysis within Ford. They were actually dumb enough to calculate, whether putting in that wall was going to be more or less expensive than paying the families for the loss of life, which they pinned at around $300k. It's the $300k that made everyone go batshit. The lesson learned in business class: when you have to make your trade off on human life, make sure that the value you put on it doesn't offend anyone.
It would seem that ancient wisdom triumphs and we live in a 2D world.
It may not be typical iPhone experience, but judging by some comments here, it's not rare either. And, yes, I'm annoyed after buying 5 iPhones and a bunch of other gear from the company in question. After ditching Dell for PCs and Nokia for phones I was hoping for a long and beautiful friendship. Meh..
No Apple Store where I live you tool. Also, not too keen on having iTunes reapply every app and every song ever deleted from the phone. That's hundreds of clicks and neither me or my wife have the patience.
Yes, AirDrop also sucks. Works only sometimes between the phones.
DOS or Win 95 had the same issue.
I would still use it if not for the fact that the USB port fell off and the absolutely dismal battery life.
It was a nice experiment that Nokia abandoned too early.
The reason you don't see many iPhone owners complaining is because they're probably ashamed that they spent the money on them and are still unhappy. I'm not an Apple hater. We own an Air (6 years and counting) that survived being dipped in champaign, a Time Capsule, an Apple TV and have bought together a total of 5 iPhones over the years.
Our phones previous to the iPhones were Nokia N900, N97, E97, N95, Samsung Galaxy Omnia, Nokia 6310i, Sony Ericsson, and some other Nokias and Siemens, but that was a decade ago or more. iPhone stability beat everything else by far when we got in at 4S. It has declined since then.
As for user culture, my wife regularily closes all apps, so as to limit their impact, she doesn't use stupid apps and doesn't play games. She learned to close apps ever since the N97.
The previous best phone before 4S was by far the N95 and the 6310i before that.
The decrease in stability over the Apple phone hardware and is versions is real. If you want hard data, please ask Apple for their support numbers
I'm referring to iTunes purchases. The phone knows the correct names.
8.3 is the exception, not the rule. I'm not looking forward to the next update. What I'm looking for is a phone on which I can be excited about the next update.
Are you saying that you are immune to the bugs that got fixed in 8.3?
The question was on a "fully featured smartphone", so basic smartphones don't fit the bill. iPhone 4S was fully featured. Mind you, the Nokia N900 had more wizzbang, but iPhone had a good balance.
Both the wife's iPhone 6 and my 5S now take several seconds to *dial a number*, which isn't explained away with the apps I have installed.
I understood the power transmission thing differently. I thought he wanted to resonate the capacitance of the Earth's atmosphere to transmit AC power. The reason that the idea didn't take off was that you can't meter the consumption. Anyone has access to siphon off the energy from the atmosphere. He had a solution that did not yield itself to a viable business model.
